The User may terminate a Free Subscription by e-mail at any time, subject to a notice period of one month to the end of the respective month.

If, according to relevant legal regulations, a right of choice exists with regard to the registration and payment of the respective taxes and duties, these obligations shall be the responsibility of the User. Should Orderfox be subject to any additional taxes or duties, the User shall indemnify Orderfox against such taxes or duties or refund them to Orderfox if such indemnification is not possible.

9.4. The User must ensure that they hold all the necessary rights to the Content they display or make available on the Website.

10.2. Ratings may only be carried out within the functions provided for these purposes and in compliance with their requirements and any deadlines (e.g. for submission or reaction to ratings from other Users). Changes are excluded, unless provided for by the rating functions or required by law. Orderfox points out that this is an internal rating process within Orderfox and not a generally valid, independent seal, test or similarly objective external rating method. Orderfox is not responsible for statements or advertising measures made by Users with reference to the ratings.
10.3. Ratings must be given in accordance with the legal requirements. This means in particular that the facts and figures expressed in the ratings must be true. Furthermore, insults or abusive, i.e. unreasonable expressions of opinion which are inappropriate in view of the criticised actions and facts and which are aimed at discrediting other Users or their performance are not permitted. The ratings must also refer to contact, and business transactions related to Orderfox and should not take into account external criteria such as political aspects. Furthermore, it is not permitted to induce other Users or third parties to submit ratings, for example by means of payments, discounts or other direct or indirect benefits.
10.4. Orderfox is not obligated to review reviews prior to publication but reserves the right to delete reviews that are illegal, i.e. that violate the law or Orderfox's terms and conditions. Orderfox has the right to delete reviews if objective evidence, indications or facts predominantly support the view that the relevant review is illegal. Orderfox may, if the facts of the case indicate that it is necessary, request the author of an objectionable rating to comment within a reasonable period of time (the period of time is usually three business days) and may depublish the objected rating for as long as this period and the evaluation of the answer lasts. Orderfox would like to point out that a decision on the deletion of ratings will be made in an appropriate manner and on the basis of objective criteria, taking into account the interests of both the rating and the rated Users. However, no court-like evidence and decision-making process can be guaranteed. In controversial cases, Users are referred to a resolution of mutual claims through regular legal actions. Orderfox reserves the right to provide information about the authors of unlawful ratings to protect the rights of other Users or the rights of Orderfox in relation to authorities, courts or other claimants, in accordance with legal requirements.

Furthermore, the consent is granted on a non-exclusive basis; a licence to use the data is granted, not ownership, i.e. the right of the User to use his/her information is not restricted. This does not affect the statutory rights of the User to revoke his/her consent.
